Once you successfully uninstall all VirtueMart plugins, we will login to our SQL backend to delete all SQL tables associated with VirtueMart.

 

4. Login to your SQL backend. In this example, we use PHPAdmin to login and manage our SQL database that had VirtueMart installed.

Note: It is always best practice to create a backup of your SQL table before making any changes to it. Do so by going to Export select Quick and ensure format is SQL. Then hit Go.

After backing up your SQL Database, expand your database with VirtueMart tables in your SQL Administration panel.

 

5. Look for all table instances with _virtuemart_ in the name. You will want to delete all of these. Select each table associated. Select Action -> Drop. This will delete the VirtueMart SQL tables.
